A number of years ago we accompanied the school children on a field trip to Colonial Williamsburg. Our scheduled tour of the Governor’s Palace was cancelled in order to accommodate a tea for the Queen of England that very day. Since we weren’t royalty, we were excluded.
1 Peter 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
In God’s kingdom, everyone is royalty. There are no class distinctions. Our background, our ethnicity, our income level, and our social status is irrelevant in God’s kingdom. Disciples of Jesus are all equally a select nation or race and a royal priesthood. When we surrender our lives to the King of Kings, we don’t become prisoners of war, instead we become a part of His royal family. Take some time to ponder this priceless blessing throughout today!
